Free Britney

Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.


Alleged singer Ashlee Simpson refused to answer questions about her pregnancy or Tuesday at MTV's TRL, saying that "I just think it's an unfair question to ask any woman," and "For me, that's something that I didn't ever want to respond to, because I think it's an inappropriate question."

"Some things, you want to keep personal, and I think that when people deny reports, it's probably because it's something they want to keep personal."

So... this means Ashlee Simpson is in fact pregnant, then? Or not?

A story on People cites another source claiming Simpson is knocked up right now - and planning on marrying Pete Wentz next month in California!

She won't admit it, but we think Ashlee Simpson is pregnant!

Earlier this week, we reported that the singer, 23, and her new fiancé, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, 28, were expecting their first child.

Wentz told MTV News it's not the case, however, saying "There is a witch hunt for people to be pregnant whenever they get engaged in Hollywood."

Ashlee Simpson has been equally quiet on the topic.

"That's all so sacred, I need to keep that to myself ... But [Wentz] did a great job at picking out the ring," she said, adding that she and Pete decided to announce their engagement themselves because "it was important for us.

"There was a story coming out and people ... always write untrue things, and we wanted to let our fans know from us."

Sit back, relax, and brace yourself for more wisdom from the great Spencer Pratt, who's dishing out advice to readers in his Radar Magazine column.

This week, Spencer talks not only about guys and relationships, but about saving the environment. Al Gore would be proud. Here's what The Hills star says ...

The Mountain Man

YO SPENCER! I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee and I love it, but lately I've been feeling bad, because it's not good for the environment. Should I trade it in?

Spencer Pratt: I feel your pain every time I fill my ride up. It's a '68 BMW that costs over $60 to fill. If you're not down with any of the hybrid SUVs, step up your game with other environment issues. Recycle, turn off the water if you're brushing your teeth, use towels more than once, turn off lights, buy recycled or green products. Other than that, suck it up.

The incomparable, all-knowing Spencer Pratt of The Hills fame.

YO SPENCER! I've started seeing this guy, but I want to take it slow. I've gotten burned in the past. He says he's okay with it, but I'm starting to feel like he's losing interest. Are guys really willing to wait?

Spencer Pratt: Sadly, most guys are dicks and are just looking to get laid. You may be the lucky girl that found Mr. Romeo, but not likely. Sorry. I would advise that unless you're a born-again virgin who wants to keep it that way, give the guy what he's been waiting for. If he deserves it. If you're not ready, you're not ready. No guy should make you feel obligated to have sex with him.



According to several sources, Britney Spears has reportedly been keeping a video diary chronicling all her problems for the last six months or so.

Oh, and she's is threatening to release them online or on MTV.

As well as rants about her mother Lynne Spears, father Jamie Spears, sister Jamie Lynn Spears, and friends, the singer reveals intimate information about her ex, Justin Timberlake, and her one-time rivalry with Christina Aguilera.

"Britney Spears' video diaries are currently the talk of the Tinseltown elite," said a source. "Her high-profile friends and exes - including Justin - knew what she was up to but assumed she was just filming herself as a form of therapy. If she does decide to go public with some of this footage, it will be explosive."

"Although some of it is really sad to watch - especially the parts where she's close to breakdown - others are dynamite. Not surprisingly both Justin Timberlake and Kevin Federline are terrified the material will end up all over the Internet. Or, even worse, Britney will agree to air then via another MTV documentary."

Of course, it's hard to envision the supposed "Tinseltown elite" caring too much, or at all, about a fallen star with multiple personalities, and Britney has been cut off from all friends, so this source sounds way more optimistic than he or she should be.

Also... remember some of the Britney Spears videos from back in the day?

Riiight. No way she says anything remotely lucid. Besides, K-Fed even did the filming for this one (below, what a classic)! Think Britney can actually operate a video camera? Or if she did, would she talk about anything but pork rinds?




Anna Kournikova raced to the finish line in a triathalon relay over the weekend, but is 100 percent certain Andy Roddick will beat her to the altar.

At the First Annual Nautica South Beach Triathalon, Anna talked to People about the engagement of tennis star Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker.

"They're really young, but I hope it works out," she said.

As for her own prospects with boyfriend Enrique Iglesias?

"I'm never getting married," she said. "Everything is good."

Meanwhile, Anna Kournikova may have run four miles as part of a women's relay team and come in first in the women's celebrity division for St Jude's Children's Hospital, but to her it wasn't "very much."

"I just did the four-mile run," she said. "But I just was really doing my normal exercise that I normally do ... I exercise about an hour a day."

Few things are finer than an Anna Kournikova bikini photo. Except for the image of Anna Kournikova naked. Not gonna find that here though.

The exercise regimen of Anna Kournikova includes a full 30 minutes of hitting the weights and 45 minutes of cardio, she explained: "I love the feeling of sweating. I've been exercising my whole life so I really love it."

Just don't count on her to stick to a diet all the time.

"I try to eat as healthy as I can, which is not always possible," she said.
But, you know, I have my Burger King and McDonalds days, too."

Maybe that's why, unlike Maria Sharapova, Anna sucked at tennis. Well, at least compared to the top players. She'd still whoop your ass 6-0, 6-1.



We knew it. Who would really make up a YouTube campaign song about John McCain? Turns out the famed McCain Girls are completely manufactured.

They are a hoax, a product of the website 23/6, which wanted to make fun of the campaign-song phenomenon, popularized by Amber Lee Ettinger and others.

So they hired three chicks to sing pro-McCain lyrics to "It's Raining Men," then followed it up with an encore spoof of "Here Comes the Rain Again."

The McCain Girls: As real as they are attractive.

The website's President admitted to the hoax, telling the New York Times:

"We were pretty amazed that after the video came out, people were confused as to whether or not it was real. That's when I think we said ‘Hey, can we actually pull off a hoax here? How long can we keep it going?'"

Is there nothing sacred in this world? We just can't take it anymore. Next thing you know they'll tell us The Hills is fake. The horror.



You gotta love The Hills.

To prove his (sort of valid) point about Heidi Montag's unfair treatment of him, Spencer Pratt makes a d!ck move in his typical, passive-aggressive fashion, then becomes indignant when called out for it. Crazy bickering and drama follows.

Mister and Mrs. Pratt

It all started when Heidi and Audrina Patridge meet for lunch and Montag asks her out for some drinks - she needs a girls night out! Like, totes, girl.

Audrina agrees, and Stephanie Pratt - also on her way to S Bar to meet Heidi - makes the mistake of telling Spencer her destination on her way out.

A few hours later, Spencer shows up at the club. Natch.

Heidi f*%king flips out when she sees Spencer talking to some girls across the bar. Even by the high standards of The Hills, this is a bona fide freak-out.

Finally, she confronts Spencer and tears him a new one for his flirting. "I can't even look at you," Heidi Montag scolds. Spencer calls her "insane," and while he may be a moron for pulling this whole stunt, it's hard to argue with that word choice.

Despite getting a hot new job lead, Lauren Conrad was not all smiles after hearing that Audrina Patridge partied with Heidi Montag the previous night.

The next morning, Audrina gives Lauren Conrad the rundown of her evening at da club, and a miffed LC suggests that Spencer and Heidi may be trying to be pals with Audrina just to piss her off. Man, Lauren Conrad is not pleased.

LC then says, in response to Audrina remarking on how the girls were actually all over Spencer, "He probably pays them. No girl would willingly touch that scum. [embarrassed pause] Whoa! Where did that come from?!"

Ah, The Hills.

Elsewhere in the life of LC, she helps out Whitney Port with the casting for Whit's company. Her crazy boss' fashion show is in full swing and LC gets to help. Very exciting and cool for our girls to take part in a major Fashion Week show!

Crazy boss Kelly Cutrone barks orders at Lauren and Whitney the whole time, but the show is a success, and Kelly offers Lauren a position. OMG! Yay!

Back in Heidi-land, she whines to her co-worker at Bolthouse that Spencer Pratt has betrayed her and she doesn't know "how she can love and hate someone so much at the same time." Groan. [Cue the sad alt-rock ballad, MTV]

Spencer and Heidi then meet up and Spencer says he doesn't know how long he can wait around for Heidi to decide she wants to be on this "relationship vacation." Again, we can't believe we are saying this right now, but:

Team Spencer?

Is Ashlee Simpson pregnant? Is that the reason she and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz announced their engagement last week?

According to a pair of well-known celebrity gossip publications, the answer to both questions is a resounding "yes."

Of course, presumed baby-daddy Pete Wentz begs to differ.

In an e-mail to MTV, Wentz denied reports that surfaced Monday on the Web site of Us Weekly that he and Simpson are expecting their first child.

"There is a witch hunt for people to be pregnant whenever they get engaged in Hollywood," he said. "This is all news to me. I can't wait for the story about how I'm really in a gay relationship and this is all just a cover. I mean really, this is crazy. I mean we're engaged, that's true, and happy about it."

Leaving no doubt as to his position on the matter, when asked again if he was denying reports that Ashlee Simpson is pregnant, Pete Wentz replied, "Yeah."

ASHLEE SIMPSON IS EXCITED: Maybe because she's pregnant, but definitely because she is talentless, yet rich and famous - the American Dream personified.

OK! Magazine and Us Weekly both cited unnamed sources close to the couple in their breaking stories. OK! offered as "proof" an account of Ashlee dealing with a "fierce bout of what appeared to be morning sickness" during a lunch at a Malibu restaurant. Right, because no one's ever eaten bad seafood or gone to wash their hands.

"Ashlee Simpson would like to walk down the aisle before she's showing," a source supposedly told the celebrity news magazine, "Although she's very cute the way she's always checking out her belly now and asking everyone, ‘Am I showing yet?'"

Meanwhile, Us Weekly reported that a source told them Simpson was pregnant shortly after her engagement to Wentz was announced last week. When asked about the report by MTV News, Simpson's rep replied: "Engaged."

On Monday, a spokesperson for Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz added fuel to the speculation by declining to confirm nor deny this week's rumors.

"We are thrilled to confirm their engagement and congratulate this happy couple," the rep told MTV. "Beyond that there is nothing to add."

Yeah, we know. We also wish we were kidding.

Alas, it's a real story ... a really bad story. The Hills' Heidi Montag decided she'd rap on MTV's TRL yesterday. Man. The girlfriend of Spencer Pratt is almost as good at this as she is at designing clothes, or singing, or acting, or looking natural.

Yay Perez!

You really must watch for yourself to fully appreciate the talent at work, although be advised that it may make you physically ill. Consider yourself warned.

Here's Heidi Montag freestyle rapping, while Nelly looks on in awe...


Yo, I got Heidiwood, I'm wearing it all day, I like it, so what d'you gotta say ...



Picking up where we left off last week on The Bachelor, six girls remain and all are headed to meet Matt Grant in Sun Valley, Idaho for some fun in the snow.

Matt gets a horse-drawn sleigh to take Chelsea on a romantic ride, but she says she hates public displays of affection and holding hands. Lame.

She tried to show Matt Grant her romantic side, though, by inviting herself up to his suite, where the two shared a long, romantic kiss. Hot.

Matt took Marshana, Shayne Lamas, Robin, and Amanda for a day of skiing. Marshana was terrible skier and spent most of her time face down.

Later, Matt took some time with Shayne Lamas, who proved a very skilled skier, and stole some kisses, too. This girl's totally gonna win.

Robin interrupted and asked why she didn't get a one on one date. He tells her he felt that he already had a strong connection with her.

Shayne Lamas (left) and the others await Matt Grant's decision.

When Matt Grant took the girls to a hot tub in the snow, Amanda grabbed him and pulled him away for a few minutes, to steal some kisses.

On his date with Noelle, hearing about the serious car accident that Noelle was in and her take on life in general really made Matt fall for her.

When Marshana says she knows how Matt lives, Chelsea and Robin gang up on her. Chelsea says Marshana doesn't really want to be on the show.

The claws come out as everyone wants time with Matt Grant - and a rose.

Matt Grant was left with a tough decision in this rose ceremony, with the home town dates just one episode away, and two girls to send a-packin'.

He chose to give roses to Shayne Lamas, Noelle, Chelsea, and Amanda. Nice! Therefore, he has eliminated Robin and Marshana. We are down to four!
